Stanislav Frank's “Pictorial Encyclopedia of Fishes” is based on the same concept as the similar books on birds or insects, reviewed by me elsewhere. Little text, many photos, but most of them in black and white only. Personally, I don't think this volume is as stunning as the two others, perhaps because most of the fish seem to be photographed in aquariums (or in caught condition on the shore). But then, I'm not very interested in fish anyway. Except in fried condition, ha ha.
